Company Culture

Loved my coworkers we were all like a family. The only thing that bothered me was the gossip we had.

Support from management

I had a great gm who helped and made sure we all had the days off we needed or if we had to call in. When she left it went all down hill and I was told I was being needy for needing a specific day off to take my kid or myself to the doctors.

Teamwork

Never had a problem with teamwork we all worked together to help upsell to the customers. The only issues I saw was that if you needed help call customers to let them know their glasses or contacts were in you were on your own.

Freedom to work independently

No complaints as I was the tech and worked alone in my room

Internal Communication

Managers constantly talked to you like you are a child.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay to low for the work you did

Environmental Friendliness

Mangers can sometimes be a bit hostile

Work-Life Balance

I barely had time for my daughter as I lived 35 mins from where I worked

Job Security

Just never gonna move up unless they liked ypu

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase the pay. Allow for more hiring of full time

What I like about the company

My coworkers

What I dislike about the company

Being micromanaged and talked down to.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would give store managers the ability to hire more full-time workers instead of multiple part-timers.

What I like about the company

They are all about empowerment at this company which is great. How America's Best is set up makes the store flow a lot smoother than at other optical places, so customers go through the pipeline a lot faster. The sales commission adds up and there is room for advancement.

What I dislike about the company

It is definitely better to be a sales associate rather than a manager. There is a lot of pressure on the managers with little to show for it, and as sales you make commission.
